Huawei unveils 7nm chipset using ARM design in server push

Huawe,ARM,Kunpeng 920

While Huawei has experience developing CPUs for smartphones, the Kunpeng 920 (built for its new TaiShan ARM servers), signals the firms intent to push further into the data centre and moreover its endorsement of ARM architecture. x86 server architecture, championed by Intel and AMC now dominates data centres. Three models - one with a focus on storage, another on high-density, and a third focused on balancing both requirements - were launched.

The Kunpeng 920 is built using the cutting edge 7-nanometer process and uses the semiconductor architecture of ARM Holdings, Shenzhen-based Huawei said in a statement on Monday.

Huawei's new ARM-based CPU is not a competitor to the US company's x86 CPUs and servers, but complementary, Mr. Xu added.

Redfox Qiu, president of the intelligent computing business department at Huawei, said the company shipped 900,000 units of servers in 2018, versus 77,000 in 2012 when it started.

That said, Huawei's new products will have an ecosystem effect, as more attention is paid to improving performance for server applications on Arm.

"We hope to make our cloud service, together with our partners, one of the top five cloud services in the world", Xu said.

Designed by Huawei and based on the ARMv8 architecture license, the Kunpeng 920 scores over 930 in the SPECint Benchmarks test- 25 percent higher than the industry average- while power usage is reduced by 30 percent against industry counterparts. Xu said that the company, despite the recent move, will continue its long-term strategic partnership with Intel and is not a competitor to the USA company's x86 CPUs and servers, but just a complementary.

"Huawei believes that an intelligent society with all things connected, sensing, and intelligent is underway, and this trend is picking up speed", the company said.

Chinese telecom giant Huawei has released a new processor chip, the Kungpeng 920, created to handle the growing flood of data cloud computers and data centers generate.

"We will work with global partners to drive the development of the ARM ecosystem and expand the computing space and embrace a diversified computing era. We're working very closely with ARM to get the optimizations done on the gcc front, and the ARM compiler", which will increase performance as these optimizations produce more efficient binaries. "For example, in big data scenarios, the TaiShan servers are tuned for optimal many-core high concurrency and resource scheduling to deliver a 20 percent computing performance boost".

On the hardware side, Huawei is a core member of Linaro. Xu tried to play down suggestions the Kunpeng 920 might compete directly with Intel, a major supplier to Huawei.
